Dr. and her staff have had extensive experience with these procedures. In addition she has had the procedures done herself several times and knows first hand what it is all about. Lastly, Dr. L handles a "high profile" clientele in NPB and she comes very recommended from some of the pickiest in the area !

I was unhappy with the way my face was starting to look after 50 and years of sun. I went to see my Dr. after a lot of research on Repair and after having consultations at other offices. She spent half an hour personally reviewing extensive before and after care and showing me patient photos. The procedure itself was a little painful but not after. She called me the night of the procedure herself to make sure I was doing ok and saw me for several days after. I am so happy I did this procedure because I have received so many compliments on how I look now!

Dr. L and her staff are wonderful. They made me very comfortable and did not leave me waiting. I was initially skeptical about CoolSculpting but the results were much more dramatic than I anticipated. It is amazing to see such an improvement with such a simple procedure. I highly recommend Dr. L and CoolSculpting!

Dr. Liu takes the time to not only explain the entire procedure, but to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. She truly cares about her patients and invests the time necessary to make you feel your procedure is her utmost priority. Dr. Liu's assistants are friendly and competent, but she always makes sure that she is involved in the overall process. I highly recommend not only her vast experience but her excellent results!

Dr. L has a professional, friendly and easy-going manner about her. She patiently and thoroughly explained the procedure, post-op instructions, and answered all my questions. She was also very conscientious in her follow-up care. Her staff are very friendly and helpful.

Dr Liu and her staff are very professional and yet so very friendly. Very easy to talk to and ask questions. I feel very comfortable in her office.

This was better than a face lift! Even after all my facial procedures to look better I was left with unwanted fat pockets that still showed the signs of aging. Now my clothes fit better, I feel better, and I look better! I had no down time, and was able to go back to work right after lunch after doing the procedure in the morning. I highly recommend this procedure to anyone who stands in front of the mirror and wishes the bulge they see was gone. Good luck and go for it! As well as being a real professional, she is so well informed that she takes the fear our on every procedure and the result is an A++ I have had the doctor help me with many of my skin problems and I have always been so happy that I am completely confident in any procedure she performs. She is the best!

I am a physician and I highly recommend Dr. Liu. I have had wonderful results with Fraxel repair and CoolSculpting. She knows what she is doing and does it well. I would not go to anyone else.

I have been a patient of Dr. Liu's for many years and have been extremely satisfied with the knowledge and treatments I have received. Most recently I had Ulthera with Rosa Liu, who is equally professional and talented. I am very pleased with the brow lift and will be scheduling another treatment for my jawline. Whatever procedure you are interested in, if you live in the OC, make an appointment at NC Dermatology for a consultation.

For any procedure, I always make sure to find the best in that particular field (board-certified, with high reviews) and get the opinions of the top two doctors to find out who has a better strategy to tackle my problem, and ultimately who I "click" with better. Dr. Liu was my second consultation for CoolSculpting and scar removal, and about halfway through, I made up my mind that I was going to use her services. She was incredibly knowledgeable and thorough in her explanation of the procedures, went through all the potential side effects (as minimal as they are), and made sure to answer all my questions. I was comfortable speaking with her, and didn't feel rushed. As I showed her the problem areas, she was the one who let me explain what I needed, and never once tried to upsell me into getting more areas done. For the CoolSculpting, she measured what size applicator would work best to get my desired results, as she had all three: small, medium, and large. I liked her so much, I arranged to have my CoolScuplting procedure done the same day! Before the procedure, she had an assistant (who was equally as nice) make sure that I was comfortable and taken care of, but Dr. Liu was the one who placed and secured the equipment on me. During the procedure they set me up with a library of movies to watch, snacks and water, and her staff was a click of the button away. They sent me home with gifts, and instructions on my aftercare that was helpful to refresh what was explained in the office. I have never felt more compelled to write a review, until after my experience with Dr. Liu. Everyone in her office exhibits such high levels of professionalism and willingness to help. I highly recommend her, and am looking forward to my future procedures.

I looked for sometime for a office to do my Ulthera treatment. I finally picked Dr. Grace Liu in Newport Beach. I had several friends go to other cheap spa like offices, with poor experiences. My treatment was A + More important it was pain FREE !!!! Just like the doctor had promised. Going to a Board Certified Doctor was very important. I will be doing my Ulthera once a year in this office, as well as my skin care, boxtox, fillers and other non invasive treatments. Staying young is a business ! I am commited to using a top doctor such as Dr. Grace Liu. I must admit, I was orginally afarid of the pain. But my experince at Dr. Grace Liu's in Newport Beach was a very pleasant experience. #1 She is Board Certified Derm. #2 She has a amazing staff who always made me feel welcome and confortable. #3 She has cutting edge technology and is always present in the office.

I had a Juvederm treatment for my lips and they look absolutely amazing!! Lip filler can be tricky but Dr. Liu knows exactly how to place the product so that you get a very natural "full" look without looking fake. She is also very informative!

Dr. Liu, Rosa, and the entire staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable, as well as informed - from yearly skin check to procedures designed to make you feel better about yourself. They do it all, and do it well!
